Wedding photography: Manche, France. Beth + Steven

June 3, 2011

After two months of glorious sunny weather in France it decided to rain the day before Beth and Steven’s wedding. Everyone kept an eye on the skies that evening. But they needn’t have worried as the sun returned and completed the bride and groom’s fantastic french wedding.

Beth and Steven met each other in France and it was befitting that they returned once more, but this time to leave as husband and wife.
They had a beautiful wedding in a small 11th century chapel followed by a sunny reception at a magnificent Chateau in Saint-Martin-de-Cenilly. The Chateau was complete with fireplaces in every room and its own lake, and provided a breathtaking setting to capture their day.

Thank you Beth and Steven for having me there.


Venue: Kelly Corbett’s Chateau in St Martin de Cenilly, Manche, Normandy
Catering: Nicky and Patrick Hilyer, owners of the Restaurant du Délice in Gavray
Church: Reverend Peter Hales, L’Homeel Gratot
Chateau Bed & Breakfast: Peter Gibson and Jan Rhodenbaugh who own the beautiful chateau La Conterie
Wedding entertainment: John Lodge

      It was a pleasure to be there and to not only photograph, but to also share a small part of your life on such an important day.

      Enjoy the honeymoon and all the best as husband and wife!

    Oh my goodness, what a simply stunning set of wedding pictures. As the bridesmaid that could not be at the wedding these have given me a real flavour of what looked like ‘the perfect day’. Have just wept my way though these, the way you have captured my two friends is amazing! Beautiful, beautiful pictures, real art!

      Wow Jac, your comment really moved me!

      I always hope that my photography connects with people on a more artistic and emotional level. I’m sorry you could not be there on the day so I’m glad that it helps you to get a feel for their wedding day.
